Default Lube dogbones??

Lube dogbones (where they go into the diff cups) or not?

If yes - grease, tiny bit of oil, or graphite powder???

Second question.... how often to CVA's need it and what lube?

IMO I have never lubed none of those. I don't think they need to be lubed but I could be wrong.

I do not lube areas open to the elements such as CVD's and axles unless there is a rubber boot covering the CVD. Dirt will stick to grease and become abrasive to the moving parts causing premature wear, unless you clean and relube every run.

OD lube attracts dirt......Sullivan dry ice is a little better but not much.......Grease DEFINATLY not......Dry graphite powder cant stick......THE only product ive found to help wear on Bones and CVD's is a Dry Film lube.....Super Lube is the brand i use which is made by Synco Chemicals corp....and it dry's 100%....neither OD or Sullivan can claim that...they leave a residue that Does attract dirt...and as hobbipro said...the dirt is Highly abrasive and WILL shorten the life of that bone or Outdrive.
